Thammasat University Building Thailand’s First Medical Hub

Mar 2021

Founded in 1934, Thammasat University (TU) is the second oldest university in Thailand. Today, Thammasat University is developing Thailand’s first medical hub with complete healthcare and medical services.

As part of the Eastern Economic Corridor (EEC) initiative, the EEC Medical Center (EECmd) at Thammasat University’s Pattaya campus covers an area of over 566 rai (more than 223 acres or nearly a million square meters). EECmd aims to become a prototype for the future development of technology and innovation for Thailand.

One of the main features of the EECmd is the Lakeside Premier Complex, a facility dedicated to the study and treatment of elderly patients and senior citizens. The first phase, which will cost THB 500 million (USD 16 million), includes 3 residential buildings, including a medical clinic, a dental clinic, a rehabilitation center, and a wellness clinic that provides information about nutrition, meditation, and yoga.

Additionally, there will be a new Thammasat University Hospital adopting IoT (Internet of Things) and medical AI (artificial intelligence) to link all medical information in terms of the medical record, basic screening tools, instrumental medical search, investigation units, laboratory information, and radiography information system.
